Sasha Washington is a teacher plagued with that one time of year where everything seems to go wrong: summer break. All of her students are moving up to first grade, her job is closed for months, and she still has bills to pay. Fiery and independent like any respectable African American woman, she's the only one of her family to go to college or have a 'legal' job. Unfortunately that doesn't save her from being morally obligated to help out a sibling when needed.
Enter Antoni Santini, a slick backed Italian businessman that just so happens to be the uncle of one of Sasha's students. He's got it all: the loving family, the good job, and most importantly a permanent VISA to America. However, he doesn't have the one thing every wolf shifter wants: his mate. On his first day off the plane, Antoni and Sasha meet, but she can't feel the bond due to her human status. That doesn't stop him, though.
When Sasha's brother robs her blind, she instantly drives to her parents' house where she knows he'll be hiding. She just didn't think her irrational anger would land her right across the street from Antoni.
They say it's not a good idea to drive while angry.
